How will the Chicago market look after We Are Unlimited layoffs? Do we know how many are losing their jobs? Chicago is already saturated jobwise and we're on the brink of a recession.

Chicago takes another haymaker. Maybe it’s just not the place to be for creatives like it used to be. The market is sure to be over saturated. I feel bad for ‘em.

If anything, more people are leaving this city majoring more jobs available. Remember there are some really great small-mid size companies with even better benefits vs the majors.

This sounds very anecdotal

Anybody has had any major client business related fails. For me an interesting one was we questioning CEO why they have not done (a rather obvious) cross sell to which he actually replied ‘we didn’t get around to it, but that feels like a good idea and an opportunity’ it probably costed the firm about 10-20% in profit p.a. for 10 odd years. I was amazed and horrified at the same time that he said it coz I would have been fired for much less

I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.
